Hi there and Happy Friday to you! Today I have a really quick post to announce the newest Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge. The incredibly talented and super sweet card diva, Tosha Leyendekker, is our hostess this month and she has a pretty sweet challenge for us. Just take a lookie at this....
Here is what Tosha has to say about this challenge:
"I love vintage, so I often think of white and pink for Christmas decor. I thought it would be fun to feature pink on a Christmas Card. So, for this month's challenge, let's THINK PINK and make it a Pink Christmas."
Now doesn't that look and sound like fun? You can see all of the details on the Power Poppy blog. Now, I need to start this off by saying that I had in mind to make a completely pink card. As you can see here, things took a turn....as they often do in my craft room. I think it still qualifies, because clearly there is pink...just not quite what I had planned for this card! :) I used the small lenten rose image from the Heaven and Nature Sing stamp set and stamped it on to a die cut that I left in the die to give me a nice clean border. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Wreaths Plain and Fancy stamp set. After coloring in my image, I sponged some distress ink around, added some shimmer and shine, and then added gold leafing around the edge. The rest of my card are some layers from white card stock and patterned papers. I assembled the layers together and that was that...a pink-ish Christmas card! :) Still not sure how I arrived at this finished card when I had in mind an all pink card....does that ever happen to you?
I love this sweet little lenten rose image and paired with the sprig of holly it makes such a pretty arrangement.
So that is all for my card today but some of my Bloomie sisters have some pretty awesome creations for your Friday inspiration so make sure you take a peek and would you leave a little blog love while you are there? We'd love it if you'd play along with us too! Link up your creation on the Power Poppy blog and you will be entered to win a prize! Yay! I'm so glad you could stop by today. I hope you have a great weekend and until next time....take care! :)
